Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Refining Softener enriched.
Description from Sephora: "Achieve a dewy, radiant, and even-toned look with this high-performance, hydrating essential. M-Tranexamic acid prevents dark spots while the Super Hydro-Synergy Complex (composed of Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE and Bio-Hyaluronic Acid) intensely hydrates to give skin a smooth, healthy appearance. Erythritol, apricot extracts, and Super Hydro-Synergy Complex normalize cell turnover to retexturize skin."
The direction for this is to saturate a cotton pad with the product then gently wiping it over cleansed face, well when I was using it as directed I didnt really feel that it was worth it, It felt like I was using too much product since the cotton pad just soaks everything, it just feels such a waste. Then it as forgotten, until a couple of weeks ago when I cleaned my drawers. I decided to give it a try again but this time I applied it without the cotton pad, I just put a couple of drops on my hands, rub it together, and gently patting my face. I like this method better since #1 3 drops is enough as opposed to soaking the whole cotton pad #2 the patting motion circulates blood flow #3 it felt relaxing #4 feels like it works better (all in my mind).
So on to the product itself, the consistency is like water but a tad thicker? After application it feels a little sticky and it takes 2-3 minutes for the product to be fully absorbed and feel moisturized. I have noticed that as I use this more often, my skin has looked better, that I can even skip moisturizer after and still feel my skin hydrated. Dewy/Radiant claim I guess it does work since skin really hydrated= dewy/radiant look?
What I like:
-> Did not experience any breakout
-> skin feels healthier
-> makes my skin look bright and radiant throughout the day
What I don't like:
-> pricey for a toner $48(sephora)
-> bottle is made out of glass, heavy heavy!
-> packaging looks pretty but not practical
I dont really have noticeable dark spots, and uneven skintone to begin with so I cannot say anything if it works for those problem, but this is so far a favorite of mine during my dry skin days. It helps boost my skin's hydration and I love how moisturized my skin looks after.
